Many foreign musicians have been outspoken about their sexuality, but the story is not the same in Ghana because homosexuality is a big no in Ghana and against the law.
The feeling, however, is different with some Ghanaians who are based in abroad.
UK-based Ghanaian afrobeats artiste, Eyeson has however revealed her love life and sexuality.
The budding musician, in a recent interview, made a shocking revelation about her sexual life saying she does not into boys but only girls.
The singer in an interview with SVTV Africa, told host DJ Nyaami when she arrived at the airport last night that, she is a proud lesbian and enjoying her relationship with her lesbian partner.
“You’re asking the wrong question, you can’t ask if I have a boyfriend, you should ask me if I’m dating. I’m attracted to more than one gender, love goes where love is, so it doesn’t matter. So yeah I have a girlfriend and I don’t see why I should hide it…No, she is not a Ghanaian, she is a Kenyan based in the UK and I can’t hide her. She added.
Asked why she decided to go the opposite way and not go straight, she said “Boys of today are not trustworthy, they only come to take advantage of you and go. So it’s better to date a girl because, at least, you know this bitch is broke and I’m broke too, so you don’t expect anything from that and women are more compassionate than men” she added.
Scientists do not know the exact cause of sexual orientation, but they theorize that it is caused by a complex interplay of genetic, hormonal, and environmental influences, and do not view it as a choice. Although no single theory on the cause of sexual orientation has yet gained widespread support, scientists favour biologically-based theories. There is considerably more evidence supporting nonsocial, biological causes of sexual orientation than social ones, especially for males.
We can only wish them luck in their relationship and all the best to Eyeson in her musical career.
Eyeson is UK based Ghanaian female artist, with the hit song ‘Odiifour’ which features award-winning rapper Guru.
